We are not called to be good. We are not called to be transformed. Sermon about being a Christian in the way of Jesus, a disciple making disciples. This may be the pastor's best sermon. A promise to be a disciple who makes disciples in his life.
Luke 3:15-17, 21-22
Father in heaven, who at the baptism of Jesus in the River Jordan proclaimed him your beloved Son and anointed him with the Holy Spirit: Grant that all who are baptized into his Name may keep the covenant they have made, and boldly confess him as Lord and Savior; who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.
